The Mendlesham Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) has been prepared by Mendlesham Parish Council and will be used to help guide and shape future development in the parish.
At its Full Council meeting on 23 March 2017, Mid Suffolk District Council resolved to 'make' (adopt) the Mendlesham NDP following a 94% vote in favour of doing so by local residents.
The Plan, which covers the period up to 2031, now forms part of the development plan framework for the District and is one of the main considerations in determining planning applications submitted in Mendlesham unless material considerations indicate otherwise.
The Mendlesham NDP went through a number of key stages before being made:
Independent Examination (Nov 2016)
Submission Consultation (July - Sept 2016)
Area Designation (June 2013)
